In this week’s news, the Blackhawks have a highly-regarded NHL prospect.
In fact, this prospect could be in line to earn a spot on the Opening Night roster, but the team says they don’t know for certain.
The problem is the player missed a week of training camp and three preseason games. So, they need to see more of him.
Fair enough. Makes sense… In other news, the team is chose not to see the aforementioned player last night when the Blackhawks host the Montreal Canadiens in the final home game of the exhibition season.
Teuvo Teravainen, despite getting into only one game thus far due to injury, didn’t dress in the Hawks’ second-to-last preseason game against the Canadiens.
“We haven’t seen him a ton this camp,” Joel Quenneville said Wednesday morning when speaking to reporters about the 20-year old prospect. “We liked him in the game he played. We like him in practice. I thought he was fine at Notre Dame. We see progress to his game. It seems like he’s a little stronger.”
